Verizon is rapidly expanding its 4G LTE network here in the United States and with that expansion comes marketing. Unfortunately, unlike the awesome Droid commercials that Big Red has run in the past, the commercials for it’s 4G LTE network are painfully bad. The latest is a prime example. Instead of explosions and cyborgs and awesomeness, we have two couples, a dunk tank, a Danny Bonaduce type character, and a commercial devoid of a punchline. Consider this a plea to Verizon on behalf of the staff at GBM to bring back the explosions and robots and awesomeness in place of what’s going on here. You can’t tell me you’d rather watch this over 4G LTE robots smashing 3G AT&T branded ones.
Also, we realize that HSPA+ is slower than LTE. We get it. Do the same dunk contest when AT&T launches its 4G LTE network and maybe the commercial would make sense.
